Battle other players and train heroes & defense towers in an all new tower defense MMO!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I am surprised the rating is so low! I really did enjoy this game! It's not one of the best, but it's lots of fun. It's mostly because the pacing is so good. You really have plenty of time to set everything up. It wasn't too complicated or anything.

It was a really big game, but it wasn't that complicated. That really helped. I thought the colors and graphics were quite good. I can at least see why this was featured. I genuinely enjoyed the gameplay.

This is... Alright. I can certainly praise the art, as it doesn't seem to be much of what you'd see in other games. While they're rather "anime" in appearance, it doesn't disregard the fact they're pretty. Unfortunately, this also plays EXACTLY the same way as another game I've seen on here, albeit considerably more laggy. Even with my quality low, the sounds that I should be hearing (arrows flying, cannon balls exploding, magic shooting and guards/barracks-men swinging swords) are not heard, and the game consistently stutters.

What's worse is that this plays EXACTLY like another game: Kingdom Rush, done by Ironhide Games. Same concept, same towers, same... Mostly everything, apart from the art. All of the game play in here is a literal carbon copy of Kingdom Rush, and possibly of other games that Kingdom Rush has copied over, or has refined or reduced. The music isn't the same, neither is the art, nor is the whole "Online"/"Farmville"-esque styled thing that this game has going on.

There are some other glaring issues with this game. You can't quit out of the tutorial, for starters. Why is that? Why are we unable to skip something that is inherently bothersome? Sure, some people need it, but with all that we've been taught in the first mission of the "game", in addition to forcefully upgrading the Arrow tower, why must we be continually spoon-fed even though we already know what to do at this point?

The Farmville-esque aspect of things. It devolves down into P2W (Commonly known as pay-to-win) tactics and it's deplorable. People are sure to find ways to make money, even if it means copying an already successful formula, but this is a FLASH game, not an "MMO" of any kind. There is nothing in this game that I couldn't already find in another here on this website, Newgrounds, or anywhere else on the internet. I could play the ever-popular "Clash of Clans" or play Farmville 2 or what ever the current rendition of it is, and I would still achieve the same experience there that I would here.

This is not taking into account any other glaring errors, such as spelling errors. This game, after about three and a half hours of playing it (and managing to waste my "energy" at tasks, meaning I need to wait hours and needless hours for it to regenerate, meaning my gameplay is intentionally hindered and delayed, dragging out the "difficulty" by becoming a time sink), I can only say that it is just a solid waste of time. It's certainly not terrible, lackluster music and very nice art aside; the design of the user-interfaces is intuitive and one usually should know where to go if they want something, or need to accomplish a task. But the game just doesn't live up to any real expectations, especially any expectations or requirements that befit an "MMO" whatsoever.

Lots of people find this review helpful!

Pretty fun game. Love the art style, and the music isn't too bad either. Appreciate the fairly friendly interface and tutorial bits.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is an RPG style tower defence game done well. There is nothing really bad to say about it. The only issue I ran into was the settings button was a tiny bit hidden, but that's because I didn't look hard enough. Awesome game, Keep it up!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very entertaining game. What I like is that I must use strategy for win a battle.
